Interesting selection of Parry, some divine others informative.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Parry: Orchestral/ Choral Works (Amanda Roocroft/ BBC National Orchestra of Wales/ Neeme Järvi) (Chandos: CHAN 10740) (Audio CD)
Most of the other reviewers say all there is to be said. I agree the Te deum is perhaps the best piece here and superbly sung and played. The Birds quite delightful also. I agree also that Jerusalem is less than I remember it from last night of the proms or even school, but interesting to hear the original,version. I find Roocroft disappointing and stretched in nearly everything she sings, perhaps this is one reason why these works are not performed regularly, they challenge even the most accomplished sopranos!
Probably a 9+ out of ten but I do love it!
